Guys after a couple of correspondences with Meermin; I have found that these 2 shoes (out of 4, but I liked these the best) are in my size 6UK.

Just wondering If you guys can tell me which one you would preferred with a brief explanation on why you picked it thanks :)

Just wondering what your favourite (e.g. most trashed/loved) pair of jeans are and pics if you can be stuffed :)

 

Thanks

Yeah as long as the difference is made between helpful, constructive critisicm and and being an ass for the sake of it.
JM knows his shit, but yes I agree the coat is bowing in the lapels, too tight in the shoulders and the sleeves a verging on being a bit short, which can happen as things get a bit tight and everything pulls up a bit. So as he alluded too, it was probably a well fitting coat at some stage and he has put a bit of weight on. The trousers are good though.

If someone doesn't ask for fit etc advice don't give it.

If they do - be constructive.

To be honest I prefer the tan longwings to the 'kangagrain'. That said, if you want some things to wear with chinos/denim, they have some nice burgundy shell longwings/bluchers, twice the price though.

 

I think you might have more luck looking for something like a brogue boot from one of the north hampton makers (Loake, Herring, etc.) or something of the sort. Something like this maybe?

etc.

That's rubbish. Wether someone asks for advice or not I am going to give it.

This forum is for opining of the buying, wearing, tailoring and styling of clothing.

 

It is up to the person receiving the advice if they wish to act upon it.

I have a pair of Borrelli jeans I found in an op shop for $10. Good fit, althought they stack a little at the ankles, and the denim is really soft. I wore them to Azzarro once and Luciano spotted them right off. (Azzarro jeans are made by Borrelli). I only own this one pair of jeans, becaus I've never felt the need to get a different pair.

In your opinion maybe. Don't assume everyone else agrees with you.

In commenting on others' fits, it is always more constructive to offer it with some tact. Being blunt and derisive are usually met with much resistance and serves to help no one.

+1.
The jacket fit is way off the mark. I really like the sab case. Been planning to get one for over a year now.

@ JM: Calories out > calories in and that jacket will look much, much better on you in the short term future. As it is, I think it makes you look larger than what you actually are.

As the person who made the ill fitting clothing for JOURNEYMAN I thought I might type out a few of my thoughts.

JM is someone I am reasonably acquainted with, having known him for about five years.

During this time I have known him his weight has tended to fluctuate quite dramatically.

When I first measured him for these suits a big part of the process was discussing fit. He tried a few coats on and tried on one of my jackets. We are roughly the same size in off the rack clothing although JM is slightly larger. Since first receiving these suits it has unfortunately become evident at least when this photo was taken that he has put on a fair amount of weight in his midriff and chest. JM is aware of this. Hence his remarks about looking list a "stuffed sausage"

I have asked him countless times if he would like to adjust his clothing or measurements to accommodate our growing concerns and at this point that he would frankly tell me that he would prefer to lose the weight and not try expand the tape measure as his waist line got larger. Being large myself, I agreed with him as I think everyone would agree that we would both look better and be healthier and happier for it.

JM is a perfectionist in most things and this same trait comes across in passion for clothing. If something he didn't agree with he would like me know.

Surprisingly JM has been extremely happy with his clothing, and by his accounts a very satisfied customer. Having worked in retail for at least fourteen years this is what I try to achieve. If the customer is happy, I am happy.

One thing I have noticed is that fit isn't the be all end all of this clothing game, its more to do with enabling a customer to become a confident and positive person which really make people more attractive than if a button pulls on their coat.

I give JM credit or anyone on the forum for having the courage to post photos here for strangers to pass comment/judgement on. I would encourage the critics to post pictures of themselves for this forum to enjoy.
